in his own defense. his attorneys have stayed tight-lipped so far but there is speculation that bulger will want to testify. he's facing a slew of charges, including 19 counts of murder. if he's found guilty of even some at age 83, he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison. robert fitzpatrick wrote a book about trying to stop bulger. this case has been full of fireworks. deborah feyerick has been live. bring us up to date on this case. >> his lawyers have asked that the jury be sequestered during deliberations. prosecutors are against it and the judge is going to have to decide that. it's still not clear whether bulger is going to testify. they are going to testify over the period of two witnesses. key among them, a mother whose daughter was killed by bulger and her ex-boyfriend. she's going to be called to testify that her daughter was being sexually molested by the man and therefore he had a greater motive to kill her. also on this list of witnesses is a crime associate who is likely to take the fifth. the reason is that he was actually implicated in one of the murders. now,
of the big activities was the defense spending bill. what is the headlines coming out of that discussion? guest: the headline has to do with the national security agency. it was a very close vote. it shows how divided the house -200epresentatives, 217 five, to keep allowing the nsa to collect telephone records. host: explain it to those that are not following it closely. many: i don't imagine too people do not understand it. this is the national security agency that was found to be collecting phone calls. they are randomly collecting phone calls under court orders from a secret court. certainly a lot of people do not want to be listened to. this was all covered by edward snowden, now sitting in the moscow airport. to stop a vote to try this practice, which was authorized by congress as part of the patriot act after 9/11. host: the amendment did not survive? guest: it did not survive. it does not explain how that would happen. host: who supported this amendment and who opposed it? we saw a lot of things that you probably did not see before. we have liberal democrats who did not like the g

? >> well, the prosecutor prosecutor plays a role along with the defense in making recommendations to the jury -- to the judge with respect to the jury charge. and to the extent this charge could have been presented in a more plain and understandable fashion, the entire system bears responsibility for that. >> thanks to my legal panel. coming up, juror b29 said zimmerman got away with murder. now calls to change the stand your ground law are getting louder. >>> plus, why attorney general eric holder may be bringing his voting rights fight to north carolina. and bill o'reilly and the right continued the desperate push to change the conversation on race from rap music to chicago violence to preaching about the black family, anything but race. >> the reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the african-american family. >> i'll show you what is behind the desperation. >>> and friend or foe, i want to know. e-mail me at reply al. it's coming up. i'm a careful investor. when you do what i do, you think about risk. i don't like the ups and
book was really an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50 years after gideon. what i would like to do is read a little section of the book first and talk for a few minutes and read a brief section. so, the section i'm going to read is in the conclusion because it's about public defenders in a conference i went to with public defenders since i thought there were probably quite a few of you in the audience, you might find it musing. i don't know. the national defenders association opened the conference in washington dc in 2011 addressed the crowd of 300 public defenders with a room with space for many more. does society demonize you? of course. do they suggest you are working for the wrong people? of course they do do they suggest you are work for thugs

[applause] >> there is a lot of people out here that will receive bachelor's and master's degrees today, but i would want to re- emphasize what was just said, and i would say she has got a doctorate in the national anthem, and that was one of the most beautiful renditions of our national anthem. i would just like to give her another round of applause. [applause] i do not know where she is at. thanks very much to -- that is quite all right. they usually start out like that every time i talk. for everybody that has got kids or families, there is everybody on the stage and all of us has gone through these ceremonies. do not worry about kids one bi

of defense and the secretaries of all of the armed forces groups, got together to honor the veterans of the korean war. it was a sight to see so many korean veterans from so many different parts of the country. and they were reminded by our president that we had been labeled as those who participated in what was referred to as the forgotten war. because most all of the world knew about the importance of america being involved in saving emocracy in world war ii and vietnam. good or bad, people knew people that went there. but somehow in the middle of that, no one really missed us or knew where korea was or didn't appear that there was too much concern. d when we did return, unlike the vietnam veterans who really unfairly had been treated so unkind, fortunately for us, we were never missed except by our family and friends, people never they here we were and to us. weren't as kind veterans turned out from all over. comrades that were part of the 20 countries that were part of the united nations. and when north koreans invaded south korea, those of us who were called to go to south korea
is about $100 million of cuts split between defense and domestic spending. so what you're going to see in september is a real fight over that. democrats have already in the budget they presented said we don't respect those caps because we are going to have a grand bargain in september. republicans said we already have a grand bargain, and those are going to run on. that will be enough to make it difficult. then the libertarian wing of the republican party all have items. one, and the senate, we will not pass the spending bills unless obamacare is defunded, and either done or defunded. you will see a 20-week abortion limit. it is a congress that has not function well or some would say even at all. but my only sense is that republicans are reading loud and clear -- if they should on the government again, it is going to be something like what happened to newt gingrich in 1995. republicans have newly taken over the house, they provoked a crisis with president clinton, the government shutdown, twice actually. in the end, republicans were blamed, and it clobbered them in the next election. r
as assistant secretary of defense for international security policy and deputy assistant secretary for nuclear forces and arms control policy. he received a bachelor's degree from georgetown and a masters in international study from johns hopkins school of advanced international studies. the floor is yours. served in this body for senator jackson, who many of you had a non-and memorable memory of, i'm sure. >> i recognize i am in the distinct minority on this panel, but i take comfort that i represent the vast majority of americans and certainly the vast majority of those of you in congress on this question. should gitmo be closed? the answer is resoundingly no there is a- unless better alternative available. i would like to put this into context if i may. it is to explain why we have gitmo in the first place. it is because we are at war. is seemingly lost on a lot of us as we talk about this in an abstract context. removed fromhow be this overarching problem. we are not just at warp. we are at war because others attacked us and, in your wisdom wisdom, and the congress you gave the to fight ba
is a key priority for the national defense? theaid the tour, replacement -- senator, the ouracement is critical to nuclear deterrent strategy and capability. have the committed to air launched missiles as well. this would seem to me to be the first priority in terms of modernization. is this consistent with your views and strategies? the flexibility of having a triad is very important to our deterrent strategy. form ise ohio last nearing its end of life, it is very important that we replace it in addition to the calculations you just mentioned. one of the things that will be from theto support department of defense to do that. a -- nos to be commitment to modernization of the whole triad. since most of our eggs are in the summer rains, we have to do that first. is that your view? it is not in my purview as to how they are paid for. it is important that we move forward with that platform. >> we are in the met of a like the 70'sts and 80's. now it is the sea battle. you will be in the midst of that. general scupper on the -- scaparrotti will be in asia. it is strategically toward the
to updated information i received from the department of defense just yesterday on time of day detention cost for fiscal year 2012 are $448 million m. for fiscal year 2013 estimated at $454 million. do the math. 166 prisoners, $454 million. we are spending $2.7 million per year for each detainee held at guantÁnamo bay. what does it cost to put a prisoner and keep him in the safest and most secure prison in america in florence colorado? $78,000 a year. against 2.7 million we are spending at guantÁnamo. this would be fiscally responsible during ordinary economic times but it's even worse when the department of defense are struggling to deal with the impact of sequestration including the furloughs and cutbacks in training for our troops. every day the soldiers and sailors serving at guantÁnamo are doing a magnificent job under difficult circumstances. i went to the southern command in miami and i met with the men who were in charge of this responsibility. i can tell you that they are saddened by this assignment that they are doing exactly what they're supposed to do. at great risk and great s

working with the prosecution and stonewalling the defense. this is really just a whitewash and it's disappointing, and frankly, makes me furious. filedon's attorneys have a motion saying that they were denied exculpatory evidence. student new lost his life after being handcuffed in a cell for four days without food or water. daniel john had been arrested at a celebration for marijuana culture. he was due to be released, but the dea and his agents forgot about him after placing him in a holding cell. he said he could see -- here's staffers outside of his cell, but no one answered his pleas for help. he drank his own urine in a bid to survive. none of the agents involved will face charges. six activists with a group codepink were arrested inside the senate are building on tuesday for protests calling for the closure of guantanamo bay. three demonstrators are on their long-term hunger strike in solidarity with guantanamo prisoners. those are some of the headlines. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. welcome to our listeners and viewers around the count
killer but also a pedophile. the former prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and some real characters that we're all being introduced to in this trial. dan, you first. i'm wondering about the testimony from the so-called rifleman. how damaging is that do you think to the defense? >> in terms of the actual charges that whitey bulger is facing, it's not that damaging. murder charges are going to be proved. there's overwhelming evidence. however, this case is unusual. it seems like the defense is more focused on stopping the prosecution from proving things that ruin his reputation like he's a rat or kills women or he's a pedophile and in that sense, that means a lot to the defense. in terms of whether he'll be convicted of murder, it probably won't make a difference. rick: what do you think of that point, the defense strategy here? could this be some kind of a preventative strategy before this guy goes to prison? >> definitely. i think they've had the conversation and bulger has told his attorneys, look. i'm going down. i know i'm going to prison but i at least need to be protected. i ca
, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because
two, and you are the one in charge. i worry, as a follower of defense policy, that in the circles -- with the people whom you speak, and whom i speak, there is often not enough awareness about the fact that this but the decision is the result of the budget drawdown that preceded sequestration. some of that includes the budget control act. all of these services are busy observing the first cuts under the bca and additional reductions that started in 2010. it has been on a downward trend since then. this is the fourth year of defense budget cuts and reductions, three of which predate sequestration. this is a significant change for the army. if sequestered continues into next year, 80,000 may look like an overwhelming number, and that could be that there is more. what is the impact on troops and their families, what are you thinking about as you implement this? >> you are right, these initial cuts are the $487 million budget reductions we agreed to prior to sequestration. the initial cuts were due because we have increased the size and the army because of our presence in iraq and afg
, the department of defense at the top of the list, in making sure that those dollars go to american companies. but there are circumstances in which the buy-american provisions are waived. there are a number of ways that you can waive those provisions, but it's important for us to have full transparency and disclosure when the department of transportation and when fhwa is considering awarding a major project funded by american taxpayers to a foreign company. you see, when the buy-american statute is waived the requirement that american material be used is null and void. and so what this bill says is that when the fhwa provides public notice that they are considering waiving the buy-america clause for a particular project, that they include in that public notice a consideration of the impact on american jobs. it's worth knowing whether a waiver is simply going to result in the loss of ten american jobs or the loss of 500 american jobs, and this amendment very simply says that when a waiver to the buy-america law is pending, that we should know from the department of transportation and from fhwa
21 months. the confederates were confined to the sort of defensive warfare that they could least afford. after gettysburg, the sun never shone for the south again. but there were other costs for the confederacy imposed by gettysburg beyond the simple fact that defeat and discouragement and disarmament. the army of northern virginia reported 2592 killed, 12,700 would, and 4150 captured or missing after gettysburg. 20,451 casualties in all based on the data that we have collected by the army of northern virginia is chief medical officer, lafayette deal. i see alexander webb has come back. that's encouraging. but the mouse i was going to click has not. [laughter] [applause] >> powerful little thing, isn't it. there is our numbers. they look even worse in cold print. given the inadequacy of military record-keeping in the civil war, there were, for instance, no grace or registration years. these losses suffered by the army of northern virginia may have been even higher than these official figures. but even beyond the simple numerical shock of the casualty lists, lee's army suffered a
with not overseeing people and his defense is he is not overseeing people. >> you hit it on the head in her words you're trying to work both sides of the room. wait a minute, are you a brilliant genius one of the greatest traders of all time or so bumbling you're not reading e-mails. having said that ceo number one play to say i didn't see that, i didn't read that. because it deflates knowily. your point is such a good one. melissa: steve wha is your take on this? because, it is believable,f you get thousands of e-mai he didn't look at every single one. i don't know. >> yeah. that seems like a reasonable defense. i hate these charges anyway. i think insider trading is a extremely difficult thing to prove. and i think that, by the way, if i were king there wouldn't be insider trading laws. i don't think insider trading should be illegal, getting information ahead of somebody else. but you know, steve cen is no angel here. theris no question this company has been under investigation for a long time for shady dealing but i'm not so sure that this defense might not stick up. that he simply didn't know wh

middle class. no good for our national defense. we ought to be having a debate about the kinds of medium and long term reforms to entitlements and tax program, but we ought not to be calling about holding the country hostage to a fights over extending the debt limit. >> here now brad sherman democrat from california and steve so h steve solice republican. get rid of the see questions terks raise taxes and spend more money. i'm here to tell you it's not going to happen. >> well, i don't think a lot of things being talked at by either party are likely to happen. you won't see a defunding of obamacare. you're unlikely to see the republicans agree to any revenue nths.ases in the next few what i hope we don't see is a default on the debt and those people who are talking about deliberately defaulting on the american debt are in the words of mccain giving us shenanigans that the american people have gotten tired up. >> steve, are you in the camp that basically condition want to fund any part of obamacare and would risk a government shutdown or some kind of default on the debt, are you in that c
by political asylum. there is a complete defense for whistle blowers to criminality. think about it. the people who expose the milan massac massacre, should they have been prosecuted. auschwitz, should that person have been prosecuted? >> david, i'd love to get your thoughts on this. the debate over whether or not lives have been harmed is still very a raging debate. a lot of people would argue the other side of that. >> one thing that bradley manning did was he didn't leak documents on a given one of these things, you know, that michael just went through was a major dump that had what some people depending where they sit, good leaks and bad leaks. to me, it's very troubling that he would be prosecuted under the espionage act even though he was let off on the aiding and abetting the enemy, which i thought was ridiculous, is this really espionage. if you look at the washington post, they have a great chart this morning, 20 odd different counts. michael i'm sure is familiar with all of them. only a few espionage. there were others about leaking classified information, violating regulations, thing
me now, criminal defense attorney page pate and columnist for "chicago defender" welcome back. jason, let's start with the emotion of this case. what that juror just said that she carries this on her back and she will carry this in her forever. >> this is huge and interesting that she is the only juror that wants to come forward and be seen because there is a classic example. a difference between the law and justice. she reflects with a lot of people out there protesting over the last two and a half weeks we're talking about. everybody knows this guy did something wrong, but whether we can fit that into the law, that's the challenge. >> page, like juror b37 she seemed to be confused by the law. maddie said, "that's where i felt confused. if a person kills someone, you get charged for it. as the law was read to me, if you have no proof he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. did she get that right? >> she did get that right but she started out as a guilty, a guilty on the more serious murder charge. what happened back in the jury room is you had other jurors who had li
, and he acts in self-defense, that's incredible bad luck he found himself in that situation twice. but we'll sleep soundly. >> you would sleep soundly if you did it again? >> if he's acting legally in self-defense again, absolutely. >> and at what point does he have to take responsibility for pursuing, some would sigh stalking unarmed teenagers who are walking home? >> again, two different levels of government review have found no fault with mr. zimmerman's actions. >> i'm asking you if you do. if you think at any point he has any responsibility for his own actions? in other words, if you're going to arm this guy again, give him a gun that he's recently used to shoot an unarmed teenager. if you're going to arm him again, and that's what you've actively done. you've raised $12,000 to arm him with guns, ammunitions, security and so on, that's fine. what if he does it again? >> well, i mean, we can go through all the hypotheticals you'd like to go through, what it comes down to is that he's gone through a government review again in the second hypothetical situation that you're raising, then
for managing park concessionaires so much of model used by the defense department and its base exchanges and recreational facilities and to pursue bonding and revolving loans. i would like to mention fenty the significant impact of sequestration from the budgetary cuts to the national park service and its related bureaus. sequestration was designed to be inflexible damaging and indiscriminate and it is. it is undermining the work we need to do one or many fronts. it's increasing increasing our backlogs and eroding our workforce and differing important work. to conclude the national park service will continue to pursue new and creative ways to address its funding needs and i want to thank our many partners who are here who have come to us with these ideas and i appreciate the support of congress to resolve this extraordinary challenge. thank you. >> director jarvis thank you very much. because of the numbers of senators here i'm just going to ask one question of director jarvis to get us started and recognize my colleagues. director jarvis or decades the park service has recommended expan
defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime and have them converted over by the pressure that had to have been put o
